CMC Outdoor Recreation Leadership graduate learns to guide in Alaska’s Chugach mountains
Brett Menter, a CMC Outdoor Recreation Leadership graduate, spent the winter as an aspiring guide with the Alaska-based guiding service Majestic Heli Ski. CMC graduate and instructor Chad Mickschl works as a guide for the company.
Menter had the opportunity to take part in daily meetings, terrain selection, guest training and assistant guiding during his winter internship. “Every day I have a chance to improve my skills and gain hands-on experience with forecasting, leadership, communication and guiding,” said Menter in a March, 2014 post about his experience. Menter’s visual round up of his season in Alaska’s stunning Chugach Range is captured in the video below.
